LA PETITE ÉCOLE DE CHICAGO (LPEC) is a bilingual French-English school serving Chicago's North Shore, Lincoln Park and Hyde Park neighborhoods.
Inspired by the program of the French Ministry of Education, our private school in the Chicago area offers a bilingual curriculum that welcomes all.
Your child will learn French and academic skills at their own pace, thanks to an individual program, based on their strengths.
Our rigorous French language school is unique because of our low students/teacher ratio.
LPEC is so much more than daycare; it is a full-time French school, with a specific curriculum. We welcome students Monday to Friday.
Discover our programs below.
Grades 7 to 12 are fully bilingual with some subjects taught completely in English, such as British and American History. This track prepares students for the Brevet des Écoles and the Baccalauréat.
All our French teachers are native speakers.
